Renewable Energy

LGSEC members are developing renewable energy projects, many of them quite small. The LGSEC monitors the regulatory proceedings on renewable energy, of which there are many. We get involved on the key issues for local governments, for example Assembly Bill 2466 (codified as Section 2830 of the Public Utilities Code), which allows a local government to install a renewable energy system up to 1 MW at one site, and net the energy produced against energy usage at other municipal sites. We have also tracked the CPUC’s efforts to develop a workable feed-in tariff, a standard contract for renewable energy that has been very successful in Europe in significantly increasing the amount of renewable energy on the grid.
